We stopped by an apple store today just to kill some time and now hubby wants one too. The demo's were 2nd gen which would not be bad for him but we also discussed with the apple associate a refurbished model( I told him to get a 3rd gen 16 gig) since you get full warranty and can still get apple care when we pick it up at the store( would go to Delaware- no sales tax if we get two tablets at the same time).
I've bought a re-firbished kitchenaid mixer that had full warranty except on paint and a digital camera but never high end electronics.
Is refurbished iPad same reason- some minor flaw they caught at the factory so technically it can't be sold as factory fresh?
I see the way apple is phasing out the 30 pin connector and I know once he sees retina display, he would regret getting the iPad 2 especially if a refurbished 3 is the same price as a new iPad 2 from the store.
